Overview

For half a century, the Denver Broncos have provided countless thrills, and a few spills, for their devoted fans. The full story of the Broncos’ wild ride— from a decade of losing seasons to mighty dynastic heights—unfolds in all its guts-and-glory drama in this illustrated history. The first complete, illustrated account of this storied team, the book tells how this charter member of the American Football League struggled through its first seasons before emerging as an elite team in the 1970s. Led by the imposing “Orange Crush” defense and quarterback Craig Morton, the Broncos reached their first Super Bowl in January 1978. The arrival of John Elway in 1983 put the Broncos on the road to dynasty, bringing five Super Bowl appearances and back-to-back championships in the late 1990s.  To this day, the team's winning ways draw raucous sellout crowds to Invesco Field at Mile High.

 

Denver Broncos: The Complete Illustrated History offers a fascinating look at one of football’s most beloved teams, from its early years as Denver’s only major sports franchise, through legendary on-field moments like “The Drive,” to the stars of today. Profiles of star players, season recaps, details of crucial games and plays, and the stories behind the great teams are complemented by hundreds of color and black-and-white images documenting the team’s history.

Editorial Reviews

Unlike Aphrodite, the mighty Denver Broncos did not emerge fully grown. In fact, as an upstart American Football League team in the '60s and early '70s, the Broncos suffered 13 consecutive losing seasons and racked up an inglorious 39-97-4 record. It was only after the leagues merged that the combine from the Mile-High City went into high gear, winning ten division championships and two Super Bowls. With player profiles, season recaps, and game pictures, Jim Saccomano's Denver Broncos: The Complete Illustrated History will ignite a whole new round of Broncomania.
